TAPESTRY VEST – KNITTING TUTORIAL

This knitting tutorial is about SKEINO’s new Tapestry Vest. Follow me along as I walk you through the construction of the vest in the video.

I will show you the finished front and back first and then we will go into detail with the construction of each of these parts.

The Tapestry Vest is really fun to knit! As always you can download the complete pattern on our product page as a PDF link.

YARN INSIGHTS – PART 4: SILK YARNS

Yarn insights is a video series of 5 episodes where I will explain the different kinds of  yarns out there. We will publish a new episode every week so make sure to stay tuned to not miss anything.

This is the fourth episode of our little yarn overview. Today I will talk about some authentic luxury fibers: silk yarns. The yarn industry offers a surprising variety of silk yarns and I have quite a number of them in my stash. Right now at SKEINO we only offer our Splendid Yarn which is a silk blend. However I am already looking at some new silk yarns that will eventually find their way into our store.

I hope you enjoyed the silk yarns I presented in the video. Please feel free to comment or ask here in the blog or directly on Youtube. If you haven’t done so already please do consider subscribing to our channel and never miss a video.

OPERETTA SHAWL – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

As you may know Staci Perry from Verypink.com posted a video tutorial last week featuring our Operetta Shawl knitting kit. As always she did an outstanding job and I hope you liked it as much as we did here at SKEINO. If you haven’t watched the video you can do so right here:

 

We received many questions from our knitting community and people who did purchase the kit were asking for some more detail regarding the pattern. Your wish is my command and so I made this little add-on video tutorial for you. As Staci mentioned it’s all about starting the project. Once you have made your way through the first rows you will see how easy this pattern is:

 

I hope you enjoyed the video and that you could take away something from my little tape. For any questions please comment below or right on our Youtube channel. If you like our video blog make sure to subscribe and never miss an episode.

THE MISS GRACE SCARF

We received so many requests per email, on Youtube and right here in the blog: Please design a Miss Grace Scarf! I’m happy to reply that it is finally here!

The Miss Grace Scarf uses the same technique as the Shawl, called Tapestry Knitting. Click here to learn more about this technique if you are unfamiliar with it.

The Miss Grace Scarf is a lot easier to knit and I am sure that you can make it even if you are more on the beginner’s side. I made a video tutorial introducing the project and in it I will give you a short tutorial how to knit the pattern:

KNITTING HELP: LACY COWL AND MISS GRACE SHAWL

In today’s episode I want to explain some questions our knitters are asking me frequently. You could also say that I will talk about how to make a hole in part one and how to avoid one in part two.

In the first class I will explain what “Slip yarn over with another yarn over” means. This technique is used in the pattern of our Lacy Cowl. It is used to create the holes in the middle section of the cowl and it is actually very easy to do.

The second class is dedicated to our Miss Grace Shawl pattern. Many knitters said that they get holes when knitting the free forms. In the video I will explain how you can avoid that.

I hope that you liked this little knitting class. I enjoy making these videos for you and if you have anything that you would like me to talk about please let me know in the comments.

RIB KNITTING: 4 RIBS I LOVE

In this episode I will show you 4 ribs I absolutely love. They are really easy to knit so join me with your needles!

Using ribs is a another fantastic way to customize a knitting pattern or to design your own pattern. I honestly think that anyone can be a knitting designer, if he or she is creative and likes to play with his or her knitting.

I hope you like these 4 ribs I am showing in the video. I truly love them and I have used them a lot in my designs. By the way since I am a combination knitter you might have to adapt your knitting a little bit. We had a great comment on Youtube from user Judy Vallas who explains in a comment below the video how you can adapt your knitting if you are not a combination knitter. Thank you Judy!

 

So what do you think about rib knitting? Also if you have a subject you would like me to cover in a future episode, please let me know in the comments!

…And as always,
#happyknitting !
